Obama Convention Ticket Features Upsidedown Flag

This latest gafftastic embarrassment is brought to you by the Democratic National Convention Committee.

KUSA out of Denver says viewers have been questioning the design:

The viewers say with the stars and blue field in the lower left corner, it looks like an upside down American flag. Published flag etiquette states the stars should always be displayed in the upper left corner. An upside down flag represents an international symbol of extreme distress.

Matt Chandler with the Obama campaign says the flag is not upside down. He says it is a stylized flag designed to blend the stars on Senator Obama’s shirt with the flag blowing in the wind.

Oh please. You can’t spin this one, guys. Either the flag is upside down, or Obama’s head and the words are upside down.

Natalie Wyeth with the Democratic National Convention Committee sent 9NEWS the following statement Saturday night:

(“Think quick people..we need to come up with an good excuse for this latest gaffe!”)

“The DNCC community credentials incorporate patriotic design elements. They do not depict an actual American flag. The DNCC has full and complete respect for the flag and all rules of display.”

Got it. It’s not a flag; the fact that it has all of the features of a flag, (upside down) is purely coincidental.

Obama Calls Bush, “John McCain’s President”

“We already have economic disaster from John McCain’s President, George W. Bush, and we can’t afford another four years, or eight years of George W. Bush policies…” Obama says at a recent stump speech in Anywhere, USA. Video here.

Someone needs to inform Obama that George W. Bush is every American’s President, including his. The disgusting disrespect he displays every time he tries to link McCain to President Bush, (apparently thinking that’s a devastating put-down), only exposes his own lack of Presidential character. Someone should also remind him that the primaries are over. He doesn’t need to pay homage to the nutroots, anymore.

Most people do not hate him with the vicious, BDS-soaked, poisonous venom that the far left does.. Even those, who don’t agree with all of his policies, can still appreciate the good intentions and decency of the man.

But the left seems convinced that if they can link McCain to Bush, it will prove lethal to him, even as Bush continues to earn the nickname, “The Fundraiser In Chief”.

Meanwhile, Obama is opening his convention with 14 percenter SanFran Nan, who incidentally, recently called Barack Obama, “a leader that God has blessed us with at this time.” and I don’t think she was joking.
